My family from all across the country came to cheer me on - Aunt Dee from South Dakota, Aunt Jean from Pittsburgh, and Aunt Donna from Atlanta all crashed on couches and spare bedrooms at the house to be part of the event. I can't thank them enough!! And of course, my husband Aaron. What a guy! The best parts of the race for me where running by and seeing him waving to me from the sidewalk. He's the best!!!!
I learned some things from running a distance race. Such as:
- I can set a goal, and make it!
- Having a group to support you makes all the difference.
- Training pays off!
- Running with a friend is the key to not getting bored.
Between my husband and my aunts, I have a ton of great photos of the day to remember it by. I recently received my copy of My Digital Studio and had to use it to create a fun scrapbook page to remember my big day. Here's what I came up with:
It uses Enjoy Every Moment and Define Your Life ("Journey"). I think both these sentiments are fitting for the day! I love the simple Rich Razzleberry background and Old Olive accents. I only made one page, but maybe I'll continue and make an entire book of the event.
Thanks to everyone who supported me in training (especially Aaron!) and for those non-runners for putting up with running posts here. :)
Now - to think of a new goal. Maybe a 1/2 Marathon....? :)
